Worked up my 1st hand-loads last weekend, was quite a rush to finally shoot my own stuff! Using Nosler #6 manual recommendation for a starting point and max load, I loaded 3 rounds of each in 1/2 grain increments (60 Gr. - 64 Gr.). I found that the 60.5 Gr load to be scary accurate, basically put 3 shots into a pattern where they were all touching one another. As I continued to shoot the heavier loaded rounds accuracy diminished (still much better than any factory loads I have ever shot). I went clear up to the 64 Gr load with no signs of pressure. Anyhow, so here I am and where do I go from here. The most accurate rounds I loaded were the lightest loads. Per the Nosler #6, it tells me the MV of the most accurate load I shot is around 2826 f.p.s. I love the accuracy, but, being a guy my, natural instinct is that, bigger is better, more is better. I do not have access to a chronograph, so I have no idea what the actual MV is in these loads.
